This renowned certification is granted by Wi-Fi Alliance, a global organization that promotes WiFi technology and certifies all products related to it. In fact, Wi-Fi Alliance is the owner of the Wi-Fi trademark.
This highlights the importance of this achievement for the Seville-based company. A certification that recognizes the hard work Galgus is doing designing, developing, and deploying cutting-edge technology for WiFi networks in complex environments. Galgus WiFi network provides quality Internet access while collecting interesting contextual information for the infrastructure managers. It also makes life easier for network administrators through its Cloud Manager platform.

More than 50 towns, cities, and rural areas in Spain already use the Galgus network for the benefit of citizens, tourists, and teleworkers. Galgus offers quality Internet access (robust, fast, and secure) to a population of more than 1 million people.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint® provides a series of benefits for users, such as not having to register each time they want to access the network from a cafeteria, shop, hotel, airport, stadium, etc., by reinforcing the network security, and automatically applying the necessary policies according to each user's credentials.
Passpoint® offers new tools to extract more value from network data, which can lead to taking advantage of new opportunities for the infrastructure owners.
